Would be grateful for any info relating to 2/Lt Leonard Ashworth, 14 York & Lancaster R, missing in action on 13 April 1918. He was a former ranker with the Sherwood Foresters.

William H Ashworth, 33, a cotton mill manager.

Clare H Ashworth, aged 34, his wife.

Children are George, aged 8, Leonard, aged 6, Elsie, 4 and Lilian, 2.

William Hilton Ashworth had married Clara Hoe in March quarter 1891 in Nottingham.

Hi Chris

The 'Officers Died in Great War' book lists him as serving in the 13th Battalion and having died of wounds on the 12th of April 1918. Is this the right one?

According to the CWGC he had a brother called George who was also a 2/Lt and who died in the Great War also.
